Toymaker, Is this model a kit or just a set of plans? Either way could you please let us know where you found them, this looks like a model I would very much like to try.

This is a really nice model. I love the detail and the craftmanship that went into this.

Nice job. It looks cool and should be a joy to complete.

Great model. I notice there are no tracks on yet. I assume they were left to near last because we all know how much fun making those tracks are, not! Haha, I do the same thing with all of my tracked models. Or I do one side at the beginning so I can look at it from that side and It looks done. But then near the end, I have to hustle down and get em’ done. Keep up the great work!
